pains but good this, this is not about ideology anymore, i don't think it's about religion. when you look at the data, it's fundamentally about age. and not unlike a lot of the other shifts we've seen, it's a question of time for the conservatives and others who are locked in a different era because as we have seen so dramatically with senator portman, their own children raised in a conservative affirment are pushing back on them and their friends are pushing back on them and this is a matter of time. >> can i say one thing, lawrence? josh expressed this. the best thing for the republican party at this point would be for the supreme court to strike down prop 8 and doma so this becomes settled law of the land and they do not have to deal with the schism inside their party and all the old guys who are culturally or religiously or for whatever reason resistant to marriage equality will no longer be holding office and will die off, i think is what josh says, and the republican party can move past this. >> well, it would take a brave republican in the meantime to move against the party on
, certainly. but any religion system lives outside of the secular world anyway. but that also doesn't mean that the rest of us if we have decided that an old system of thinking that did not allow, for example, women to work or vote which is absolutely the structure of -- of older judao christian thinking from the catholic church to the episcopal church sarah silverman's sister who is a are buy just got arrested for prayingal the whaling wall because women are not allowed to pray at the whaling wall. now in the united states we would not believe in such a thing. >> caller: yes. >> hal: so they don't believe that women are not allowed to leave the home without a chaperon chaperon, but the rest of society should not be responsible for enforcing your belief system. >> now if you believed that [ inaudible ] you could be in serious trouble with muslims worldwide. >> hal: how do you mean? >> caller: you can't discard marriage in a christian way -- >> hal: i'm not. that's what i'm saying you have every right in your belief system to get married and maintain marriage in y
, freedom from religion, is protesting the memorial and several others, not because of the memorial itself, but they say because there's a cross on the memorial and that, they say, violates the separation of church and state and saying, i'm quoting here, our objection is to the message of endorsement of christianity over other religions and over non-religions. the christian-only memorial sends a message that the government only cares about the deaths of christian soldiers, not jewish, other non-christian and non-religious soldiers. coos bay says this. >> we passed it on to our city attorney to review that and relevant case law. and obviously these cases are happening around the nation. >> trace: again, it becomes a legal fight and the legal fights have been kind of split decisions. remember the cross of mount soledad? that had to be taken down. the mojave memorial was donated to a veterans group, but the supreme court ruled that that did not violate the establishment clause and they allowed that cross to stay. so somebody stole it a couple of years ago, so now it's gone. but legally, it wa
? >> right. just for all purposes of full disclosure here, i think that -- i believe in religion and i'm not an atheist by any means. but this has been very clear and determined by the courts that this is a violation of the establishment clause of the constitution or the first amendment. and why that is is because you can not have an entanglement of public and religion here. that's what's going on. this is a public school and this is the school putting a seal of approval on a religious piece of art. >> ainsley: okay. david, we want to hear the other side of this because any time we see a nativity, a portrait of jesus, the ten commands, we know it's a matter of time before the aclu will get involved. do they have a case here? >> certainly they may have a case burks i don't think they're going to be victorious. it's not as easy it was just explained. this is a convoluted type of thing. this particular situation is sponsored by a private club within a public school. the supreme court has been very clear -- >> which case? you're absolutely wrong. there has been no case. >> i'm in the middl
since then. he's a socialist. he's a muslim, an elitist. he's waging a war against religion. but this weekend it took a turn. twitter erupted during the history channel's hugely popular miniseries, the bible, when someone pointed out a resemblance between the actor playing devil and president obama. he tweeted, anyone else think the devil in the bible sunday on the history channel looks exactly like that guy. >> the history channel released a statement calling it unfortunate that anyone made this connection. but that hasn't stopped right wing conspiracy sites from turning out. let me get this straight. the devil is a man who fought to reform healthcare to people with preexisting conditions can't be denied coverage. a man who's set to end a decade of war, a man who's fighting to raise minimum wage, oman who puts the middle class interests ahead of the interests of the upper class. sounds like people need to brush up on the good book. tonight in our survey, 95% say yes, 5% say no. decade after the iraq war, dick cheney says he's do it all over again.

of its salvation. it's a part of the three great religions, judaism, christianity. it's a story that's inspired communities across the globe, including me and my fellow americans. in the united states, a nation made up of people who crossed oceans to start anew were naturally drawn to the idea of finding freedom in our land. to african-americans, the story of the exodus was perhaps the central story, the most powerful image about emerging from the grip of bondage to reach for liberty and human dignity, a tale that was carried from slavery through the civil rights movement into today. for generations, this promise helped people weather poverty and persecution while holding on to the hope that a better day was on the horizon. for me personally, growing up in far-flung parts of the world and without firm roots, the story spoke to a yearning within every human being for a home. [ applause ] of course, even as we draw strength from the story of god's will and his gift of freedom expressed on passover, we also know that here on earth we must bear our responsibilities in an imperfect world.
forms since then. he is a socialist, a muslim, elitist, waging a war against religion. you get the idea. this weekend the demonization of president obama took a very literal turn. twitter erupted during last night's episode of the history channel's hugely popular miniseries the bible when some viewers pointed out resemblance between the actor playing satan and president obama. viewers like glenn beck. beck tweeted anyone else think the devil in "the bible" sunday on history channel looks exactly like that guy? by this morning, obama satan was trending on twitter. history channel released a statement saying it's unfortunate anyone made this false connection. conspiracy sites have delusional posts comparing the president to the devil. the devil is a man who fought to >>> now for the big finish. tomorrow marks ten years since the u.s. invaded iraq in one of president bush's advisers is trying to explain the war he helped sell to the american people. paul wolfowits was the first person to influence president bush to overthrow saddam hussein after 9/11. he says the most consequential failure
point, joy, about religion and you know, religious traditions, it will be interesting to see how the catholic church handles this in the coming years. i heard a little more wiggle room than perhaps you heard. i heard him saying this is not -- eight years ago, you would have heard republicans making demeaning, dismissive, derisive -- >> the tone of it was i'm trapped here, i'm an old guy, who believes what i believe. i'm kind of trapped here. >> he might resemble your remark, jacob, more than you think. he might be there with his conscience more than you think. >> were you for gay marriage when you ran for senate? >> i've had like many americans have had an evolution on this over the past six years, living here in new york, my wife has help immediate understand this i differently. it didn't really bother me who got married. but where i came from, my pastor told me and my church told me there was one way. and the older i got and the smarter i got and the more mature i got and i married a smart woman. >> uh-huh. >> all right, james i want to ask you since we're talking about hillary
obama. >> it does look very, very much -- >> i turned to my wife and said whoa. >> great religions, judaism, christianity and islam that seems jerusalem as -- the story of the exodus. >> if satan had a son, would he look like the guy? itches just as josh way carried on after moses. >> no one is calling him the devil. >> you can put it on your screen. >> is there something else i can do to mott make these guys paint horns on my head. >> angela rye. >> and dana milbank. angela, we just heard the president saying he wished republicans would stop -- and it seems the history channel has cast an actor in the role of satan that glenn beck and others say looks just like the president. i thought his greatest sin was being a kenyan socialist. now it appears he's satan as well? >> they just can't get enough. they tried to say he was born, he didn't wear a flag pin during the campaign, didn't say the pledge of allegiance. i do not united states these folks. i do not think at all this individual looks like the president. actually it looks burned, like he's been in the fire, hence satan, but not
of freedom and religion and call on the iranian authorities to respect mr. abedini's human rights and to release him. you know, that is his statement. is that, what more do you want? what more do you expect? >> he made that statement the day he was confirmed but he wasn't secretary of state. since he has been secretary of state senator rubio's office has been following up with secretary kerry's office. he was responding to a question from senator rubio, a written question. here is another one of our points. the state department has never taken a proactive step. everything has been a reaction to a reporter's question, a senator's question. let's issue a statement from the secretary of state. martha: you played down this deadline here today of friday. what do you want by friday. >> we hope it comes before so we can work with the state department a clear statement from john kerry, secretary of state calling for eye saeed abedini's release and calling for iran to release this american citizen today. martha: i will leave everyone with this thought. you remember the hikers and all of th
paul. and i am an old time lutheran. is not to be trusted. it is important to know exactly the religion of our candidates. there is nothing more important. host: she is gone. father is apaul's christian and religious man. the republican party is going through rebuilding and redesign and try to figure out what they will do and rand paul could be a big part of that. he had a filibuster on the floor and i'm sure we will be hearing his name more in the future. host: mechanicsville, va., go ahead. caller: i have a question -- when you are debating about the budget, why do they continue to put amendments in there that have absolutely nothing to do with - the budget. ? guest: that the great question. it's because they can. there is a role in the senate that says they can attach strings to the budget and no one can stop them. that the opportunity senators have, they took it. mideast policy got involved and to guns and so they did whatever they wanted to do. that was on full display. not covered in the lessons proffered by "school house rock." you talked about briefly but you can expand about ho
